It will withstand winds of up to 402 kph (250 mph), ensuring that your family and home are safe and secure in almost any situation. The strength of the insulated concrete wall systems comes from the steel-reinforced solid concrete core. NUDURA offers Insulated Concrete Forms in sizes ranging from 4 inches to 12 inches of concrete that stand between you and the elements. When compared to traditional wood-frame walls, that offer only soft bat insulation and a wood frame, the strength and safety you get with NUDURA insulated concrete wall systems is far superior.
